Between 80 to 85 percent of diabetics will develop some degree of retinopathy during their lifetime. Individuals who have Type I diabetes are more likely to develop the condition than those with Type II diabetes. If patients with diabetic retinopathy are treated properly before the retina is severely damaged, there is an excellent chance of stabilizing the disease and stopping the progression.
